Pop-Up News interviewed Rev. Mark Bryant, Bishop of Jarrow, on a sunny Saturday in front of the colossal Angel of the North in Gateshead. The location, and the statue itself, are symbols of hope for the working classes. We asked Bishop Bryant about the role of women within the Church and wider society.
At the moment, women cannot become Bishops in the Church of England. But Bishop Bryant promised a change in the near future. He said that the Government and the Church are trying to solve the problem of gender inequality, but there is still work to be done.
